This guide will show you how to set up an output destination in Fusion from the Streams panel. If you're using Fusion for the first time, This Guide will show you everything you need to know, including adding Outputs. This guide only directly references CT Live connection settings, so for third-party scoring software, please refer to the documentation for those programs for their connection settings.
Adding a Connection
On the Streams tab under the Outputs tab, click the Add Connection button to add output destinations to which data will be sent. These outputs will be the information for ChronoTrack Live, RunScore, Race Director, or whatever scoring software you will be using to score your race.
The Add Connection button will only be available when you have selected a Stream.
In the New Connection window that pops up, enter the Host Address string for the destination. For CT Live, this will be raceday.chronotrack.com.
Next enter the Port through which data will be streamed. For CT Live, this is 20201
Now enter a Description for the connection. This will tell you at a glance which Output you are selecting for any given Stream.
If necessary, enter a Username and Password. These are not necessary to stream to CT Live.
Finally, if your software will require a special Connection Output Format, adjust the settings accordingly. Settings include Line Mode, Field Separator, and Line Terminator. If you are streaming to CT Live, these settings do not need to be changed from their default values. Only change the Connection Output Format settings if you know what you're doing.
When you're done with the Output settings, click Create Connection. The new connection will now be selectable in the Outputs tab on the Streams page.
To stream data to one or more of the Outputs, simply check the box next to each one two which you'd like to stream. You can click the pencil icon next to each Output to edit it at any time, or click the X to remove the output.
Please note that you will need to select an Output for each Stream before you can stream the data. You can specify a Default Output on the Settings page of Fusion.
